Back in March we learned that Politics & Prose was adding beer and wine options to their coffehouse – an update from the owners:
“The coffeehouse at Politics & Prose has long been a signature attraction of the store, a neighborhood gathering spot for book lovers seeking a great cup of coffee, light fare, and a feeling of community. And now the place is about to get a facelift. In January, we’ll begin a renovation to add more seating, improve the flow, and generally brighten the space.
We’ll have more details in the weeks ahead about some other exciting plans underway for the coffeehouse when it re-opens. But in the meantime we wanted to let customers know that it will be closed beginning January 1 for up to three months. During that period the outdoor entrance into the coffeehouse will not be accessible, so customers coming into the store from the parking lot will need to enter through the back of the Children and Teens Department or through the store’s front door on Connecticut Avenue NW.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be reducing the menu to prepare for the renovation. During the final week of December the coffeehouse will be serving only beverages. For the period when the coffeehouse is closed for the renovation, we’ll have a coffee cart with beverages and pastries for sale in the store.
We realize that the temporary closure of the coffeehouse will deprive customers of a favorite hang-out for several months and, as with any construction project, will create some inconveniences. But we’re confident that the space will be much improved once the coffeehouse re-opens. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we undertake this project. We’re very excited about making the coffeehouse, and the overall experience of being at P&P, even more enjoyable for customers.”
